We were staying in the Pacific Beach area, and about 5 days into our stay discovered World Curry. That was it. Since then we ate dinner from there every night. We tried different dishes each night and every single dish was superb. I have only one griped - one the rice is always sticky rice. I wish basmati rice were... More

We went here as it was close and had good reviews. We were disappointed. No shrimp available but we weren't told when we ordered take out so we came back the required 15 mins later only to find out then and have to order something else. Rice was lukewarm. Curries were lukewarm, tandoori kebab was cold but the tikka masala... More

Several different kinds are available. Servings are heavy on the rice, easy on the curry, but it's a very fair meal for the price. I've been a couple of times and would happily go again. Not a fancy place, but a good meal.

This place is a great dining choice in Pacific Beach. They offer a variety of curries - vegan, gluten free, & vegetarian options available. They'll adjust the spice level to your liking.

We had great service and enjoyed the food very much. Portions were good size and the wait staff extremely helpful. But MAN! Did we have to ward off the flies!

The food at World Curry was nothing short of fantastic. May wife and I took our 8-year-old granddaughter to San Diego for a quick summer getaway and saw this restaurant while driving around town. We like it so much we returned the next day for another meal. I highly recommend the Tikka Masala and the Golden.

It's not a big place, but the people from there are friendly with a very good attention. The menu is not very expensive and you can find curry dishes from different countries, like Thailand, India, Japan, etc. Nice restaurant to go for a casual dinner with friends, family or couple. There are vegan and gluten free options.

I'm a big fan of curry, though I don't have highbrow discerning tastes for it, but I know what I like, and I like this place. The hot option for curry isn't as hot as you'd expect considering that Mexican spice is what most people in this area compare 'hot' to. It adds flavor to the curry as opposed to... More

Food never disappoints. You can get coupons or deals online. The food are simple but full of flavor. They have a happy hour that have great drink options and appetizers. The drinks are so inexpensive. A pitcher is less than 15 bucks. They now have a rewards system too which is convenient. My husband loves his curry and this place... More

Enjoyed our lunch there while on vacation. Fun little spot. Super yummy hummus and naan. Enjoyed when the wall was rolled up letting us feel like we were eating outside. Staff was very friendly and helpful.
